Valentine’s not so much. My husband knows better than to bring me anything on the official Hearts Day. But our Anniversary is different. That is OUR day. And to me very special. I married a really good, smart and generous man who thinks we should get married again — with our beautiful kids there! His very own words.
Happily married in Stockholm, 12 years ago. (Yikes! Starting to look a little outdated… But what a crazy fun and beautiful day it was!).
My birthday (actually today!) and anniversary will be merged into one royal package this weekend — when it is all about hubby & I. I am quite excited!
For any of you looking for some heartfelt anniversary/love gifts — I think I have found two really good candidates.
1. Enlarging and framing your (or your partner’s) favorite piece of music. Will definitely try. Personal and unique. I like it a lot. (Would also work for a nursery – your favorite nursery rhyme!).
2. Turning memories into material is also a brilliant idea. Spoonflower lets folks puts anything on fabric — artwork, letters, photos. (For the fabric on the chair a family letter from 1882 was used). Within 10 days you have your personalized fabric at your doorstep! (They also ship internationally). I am thinking I need to try that as well. Perhaps sentimental fabric for an over-sized lamp shade?
Wishing you all a happy rest of the week!
